you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism, in a different form. biological and chemical weapons. organizations that attacked the united states and killed innocent people. but it was, i think last year or the year before, that we were briefed by the state department, department of defense, about the greatest threat to security in the united states and it wasn't either of those things. it was cybersecurity. i think you may have attended the brief, the classified briefing for members of the senate. democrats and republicans. they explained to us this invisible war that goes on even as we meet between the united states and many who are not our friends that are

. >> not pretty in deed. let's look at other news. john kerry has appeared before the senate foreign relations committee to seek confirmation as the next american secretary of state. he said he would do everything in his power to build on hillary clinton's record and president obama's addition. he's expected to be confirmed. the government of yemen says a senior leader of the local branch of al qaeda has died of wounds received last a member. it has not been confirmed by his group and previous reports of his death have proved to be false. this time, however, both the yemen state news agency and a diplomat at the embassy in washington have announced the news. the u.n. has launched an investigation into civilian deaths from from strikes in a number of countries including somalia, pakistan, afghanistan, and yemen. the inquiry will look at 25 separate from strikes including a u.s. attack in pakistan in 2011 where up to 40 civilians are reported to have been killed. in syria today, war planes continued to bomb rubble-held areas near the capital as president assad was shown on television and attendi
disagree with. i also would suggest, once senator kerry gets confirmed for secretary of state, that he go to the region in the nearest possible time frame. he knows all the leaders there. he's known bibi netanyahu for 25 years, has a very close relationship with him, among others. and that in a nearer time frame after that, president obama go to the region, including israel, and take his own measure of the situation. it's pa reset moment, i think, for the region with israel as a player in the region, and for our policy to the region. >> i want to talk to you. you mentioned john kerry, the incoming secretary of state. he has called for a freezing of settlements, but he's also called for a two-state solution. how does he go to israel, netanyahu elected, at least in part, with the strong support of the right, who does not want that. how does john kerry go to israel, and to your point say, look, your future as a jewish democracy depends on you changing or breaking with some of the people who got you elected. how do you make that case? put yourself in his shoes. >> i wouldn't presume to tell b

? >> the nomination for cia and senator kerry for secretary of state, these are very talented managers, but i think the essence of the obama administration across foreign policy process is a centrally run process out of the white house by the national security advisor, by the president, the vice president. i think you will see more of that, so we will see more of the same, with a few exceptions. >> is stepping back approach, and you think that is going to be showing in mali and syria? we are likely -- unlikely to see the u.s. taking the lead in those conflicts? >> i am worried. we had china and japan increasingly competitive with potential conflicts with territorial disputes in the south china sea. we had india and pakistan. we had new instability in northern africa. we have syria. we have a number of crises potentially multiplying, but i do not see a different or strong or old set of initiatives from the u.s. i hope so. ink tv. >> hello, the top stories. troops have retaken two central towns from rebel groups. the government extended the state of emergency by three months. soldiers in retreat brie

't want to go abroad. retreat is idea and policy of reseeding. with the nomination of john kerry and chuck hagel is president obama sending a chamberlain message? >> i think charles is right. he is sending the message. these are care-takers and people who will keep the foreign policy off his desk. some people say is part of the foreign policy part. climate change, and we know kerry will be deeply invested in. that has a real policy and dollars and cents. the rest is tabulum. the cabinet pointments are people to allow him to focus on this domesticbe transformation. >> bret: a leap forward for tomorrow. secretary clinton testifying on benghazi. she will testify in the morning on the senate side and afternoonbe in the house. this should be high drama when it comes to congress. asking and answering. the republicans are forecasting that. >> i don't know that they will be surprises in a lot of new revelations from the testimony. >> bret: charles? >> i think they will ask what did you know and when did you know it? where were you during the attackbe? what did the president say? who were the embas
as the secretary of state. senator john kerry, our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, was watching what could very well be her last public appearance before congress. >> the waning days of hillary clinton as her secretary of state and it's time to ask the question, did she put her mark on that job? hillary clinton's last day of secretary of state is almost here. >> we're all getting a little emotional anticipate sentimental around here. we have about a little over a week to go in my tenure. >> that is, if the senate, as expected, confirms john kerry by then. >> john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy and i urge his sped deacon firm mags. >> before leaving, just like her first day on the job four years ago -- >> i am absolutely honored and thrilled beyond words to be here with you. >> clinton is likely to say good-bye to the diplomat she's led and deliver a major speech on international policy. but her last days as america's high-flying top diplomat have been overshadowed by nearly a month of illness, the fallout over the deadly attack in bengh
on the foreign policy side in chuck hagel and to some lesser extent john kerry have been somewhat aggressive and particularly hagel, who is more so probably than any other serving politician, and sort of more than any other republican politician formed his foreign policy status or prestige as a reaction to the failures of the meeo conservatism. in a way that didn't seem possible, there does seem to be a concerted effort here to coninstruct a post neo conservative foreign policy consensus to learn the lessons of essentially the bush era, where the first one was cleaning up what bush had done, and the second one was defining what comes next, and you saw that in the inaugural, and you are also seeing it in the appointments. those matter even more. >> michael, roger cohen writes, "when i asked myself what i hoped barack obama's second term would inaugural, my answer was a new era of diploma as where i. remember that thing? the nobel peace prize. obama has chosen two knowledgeable professionals who have seen enough war to loathe it and have deep experience of the world. i think they're sharing a
kerry is seen as a shoo-in to replace secretary clinton. at defense, after bob gates and panetta, the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message. he is republican but the past statements on israel and iran as well as his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, he will most likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. >> this is a president looking for what they used to say about eisenhower, against on the cheap. using drones, using intelligence in new way anything but to send troops into a foreign war. >> in the second term many analysts look for one last big push, perhaps immigration reform. with a growing latino vote adding additional pressure on both parties ahead of 2016 and others feel the time has passed for big bold moves. douglas brinkley said the gridlock in washington is very real and the president has to wake up every day determined not to be a lame duck president. and the inner team obama, he has had more chiefs of staff than any other president in history and with the next ch
introducing senator john kerry in his confirmation hearing and we'll tell you about that in just a bit. walter is in baltimore, maryland on our independent line. caller: happy new year, this is my first call of the year and i'm looking to being a continued participant p c-span. i enjoyed secretary clinton's responses to the questions that were thrown at her by the republican -- if i can, clowns, who seem to want to make this a travesty on the american people when it was not a travesty on the american people. it was an attack. and i do believe that she honestly and tried to defend our system of justice by not jumping out off the bridge with a bunch of foolishness. the terrorist attacks that occurred on september 11 of last year, couldn't have been anticipated by anybody. and we hope as we have taken the flags and ribbons off our cars following september 11, 2001, that we will respectfully try and come together and move on with justice for the world, not just for those four americans that died. but for the entire world. host: let's go to florida, and sharon on our republican line. caller: i was

praised. while senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you said in your opening statement, you're determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure and in my view because of your leadership, they are. today we continue the consideration of the advisory review board which found that security was quote grossly inadequate to deal with the attack on benghazi. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable. i'm pleased that the state department has gun to promptly implement the board's recommendations thanks to your leadership. i know you agree the massive security failures such as those witnessed in benghazi that cost the lives of four brave americans, simply cannot happen again. i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect diplomats and other americans who put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the africa subcommittee, i'm pleased you have drawn for the committee in y
